Baxi cuts carbon emissions by more than one-third

Baxi’s carbon emissions last year were 35 per cent lower than two years ago, according to its sustainability report, due out next week*The biggest reason for the reduction was its decision to buy electricity only from renewable sources, says the company.

The company is aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its own operations by 5 per cent every year from 2019 to 2030. This is in addition to a 30 per cent reduction in emissions in the supply chain producing the materials and components that go into its appliances, as well as the emissions created by its products by 2030.

The company has recently changed its company car policy to electric/hybrid only and is trialling electric vans for its field engineers.

HS&E and quality director Ian Robinson: “While there is still work to do, the figures represent an important step in achieving environmental goals. Baxi will report its progress on several other measures in its Sustainability Report.

“Having recycled nearly 99 per cent of its waste in 2021, Baxi is targeting a 50 per cent reduction in overall waste by 2025. By the same date, the company is aiming to ensure all of its packaging is recyclable, commencing with a pilot to replace difficult-to-recycle polystyrene packaging, with an alternative made from waste cardboard.”
